With schools educating students face-to-face, blended and virtually, conducting Second Grade Child Find can be a nightmare. However, several virtual schools around the state have been conducting the six required lessons and administering the universal screener. We will hear from gifted specialists from two of those virtual schools to see how they have conducted all parts of second grade child find, including the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful. Then your system can determine how you will complete Second Grade Child Find during the COVID school year.
